Possible Lineups

A lot of players were linked with Manchester United in the summer, however, only three of them have joined the club so far. Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez’s addition might fill certain gaps in the squad but not necessarily solve all of their concerns. Besides, the future of their star striker Cristiano Ronaldo has drawn unnecessary attention to the club. Ronaldo has played just 45 minutes in pre-season, yet he could start on Sunday due to Anthony Martial’s injury. 

Besides, there are also question marks over Jadon Sancho’s participation, which could allow young players such as Anthony Elanga and Alejandro Garnacho to get a look into the first-team squad. Meanwhile, Brighton will have to make do without the services of Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella, with the duo departing the club this summer. New signings Julio Enciso, Simon Adingra and Levi Colwill will definitely give them a big boost. However, they will miss the injured Jakub Moder on Sunday.

Manchester United possible line-up: De Gea, Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Malacia; Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford, Ronaldo

Brighton & Hove Albion possible line-up: Sanchez, Veltman, Dunk, Webster, Lamptey, Gross, Mwepu, March, MacAllister, Trossard, Welbeck
